To create the co-branded spot, Wieden & Kennedy collaborated with HBO's agency, Droga5.

"Corn and rice, most of those are 100-percent fermentable so those are not going to be in your finished product, usually", agreed Desiree Chubb, 3 Daughters' director of quality assurance.

"Anheuser-Busch fully supports corn growers and will continue to invest in the corn industry", said a spokesman, according to Fox News.

American consumption of high fructose corn syrup started to fall at the beginning of the millennium when it was linked to the country's high rate of obesity.

"You might not be drinking it in your Bud Light but you'll be eating it with your payday and pancakes, you know", says Max Tjaden. You know at first it's like if you're drinking beer, are you really anxious about that?

Adam Collins, vice president of communications and community affairs for Chicago-based MillerCoors, chalked the Bud Light shot up to MillerCoors threatening Bud Light's market share. He also noted that Anheuser-Busch uses high fructose corn syrup in some of its beverages, which is true - a look through the company's hard soda and iced tea beverage products finds that high fructose corn syrup is used as ingredient. "There's lots of different places to get the sugar from". He says Budweiser's new marketing campaign slighting corn syrup has him confused. "It's really not true".

"When I saw the commercial, I was like, 'Well OK, they use corn syrup". By the time it's turned into alcohol, there's literally no difference between them. Watch 'em before they go stale and get pulled from YouTube!
